Lamentations 4:8-10 New English Translation (NET Bible)
8 Now their appearance is darker than soot;
they are not recognized in the streets.
Their skin has shriveled on their bones;
it is dried up, like tree bark.
9 Those who die by the sword are better off
than those who die of hunger,
those who waste away,
struck down from lack of food.
10 The hands of tenderhearted women
cooked their own children,
who became their food,
when my people were destroyed.
